Destination of the Week: Chicago-Downtown (West Loop), IL-Maxwell Street Market

Destination of the Week: Chicago-Downtown (West Loop), IL-Maxwell Street Market

Oh, what can someone say about Maxwell Street Market that has not been seen elsewhere?  Moved a few times due to gentrification of nearby neighborhoods, even the current location seems odd in the shade of downtown towers and a growing retail district around West Roosevelt Road.  Part street fair, part flea market, part food market, Maxwell Street Market may not be the first thing you consider doing on an early Sunday morning, but it is well worth waking up a bit early and experiencing this one-of-a-kind marketplace.

Address:
South Des Plaines Street, from West Polk Street to West Roosevelt Road
